5 Banana Facts that will have you and your family eating loads of Banana and Coconut Milk Pops!
Great Source of Carbohydrates for Energy
Bananas are an excellent source of the carbohydrates in the form of natural sugars and starch.
Protein for Growth
Normal growth needs protein to help produce new cells. A small banana smoothie (150 mL milk and a half banana) as a snack or meal is an excellent source of both protein and calcium.
Vitamin B6 for Blood Health
This vitamin is needed for making red blood cells, and carrying nerve impulses.
Folate for Growth and Brain Health
The B vitamin folate is needed for proper growth and development in toddlers and is hugely beneficial for pregnant women. Half a banana will give a toddler about 15 percent of their folate needs each day.
Fibre for Digestive Health
Bananas are a great-tasting source of fibre, so even a small serving a day, especially for a young child, will help keep you regular.
